Offered here is an official 90% scale PGA Championship Wanamaker Trophy. Simply put, this trophy is a behemoth - standing 28" tall, 17" wide at the handles, and weighing in at over 25 pounds! 

The Wanamaker Trophies given to PGA Championship winners are traditionally small so-called "Player" trophies that stand about 15" tall. This Wanamaker Trophy, on the other hand, is massive. The quality of the trophy can also not be overstated - with its impressive raised lettering and fine details. In person, this may be the most impressive golf trophy we've ever encountered. 

This large 90% scale Wanamaker Trophy was ordered by a 1966 PGA Champion Al Geiberger a few years ago. He had the option to have it engraved only up to his year of victory (1966), or to have the engravings all the way up to the current Champion, which was then Brooks Koepka after his 2019 PGA Championship win at Bethpage Black. The trophy is engraved with the names and location of victory of every Champion from Jim Barnes at the first PGA Championship in 1916 through Koepka's victory over 100 years later.
